  1. This was very helpful however I got list in Step 5.

    I see my new content type under “new document” but do not understand the following instruction”
    “Click the New Document list and select your content type, type a name for the new document set, and then click OK.”

    When I click on my new content type it launches in excel. Please explain what you mean by “type a name for the new document set”. Where do I type the name? Are you asking us to open the document and do a file ‘save as’?

    Thank you,
    Dora
